upfront? all the other states lose medicare vantage within five years, but florida is to keep it? why? these have to be dropped. with all respect to senator reid who says he cannot pass health care without these deals, then he is going nowhere. house members are disappointed, like the american people. there are two things to watch. legislation being made and sausage. -- there are two things you do not want to watch. this should stand on its merit. michigan was one of the first it's economically. -- one of worst states economically. let's pass this on policy. i always thought they would do a trigger. no greater than the rate of inflation, if it goes, trigger a public option. that is one when they talk about a compromise. that makes sense. this the one this side of the room. -- let's go to this side of the room.

senator ben nelson? apparently he is asking for money for his state that would be used for medicare and he's asking not to take it anymore? guest: this was done essentially to get senator nelson's vote. it was to expand federal funding for medicare in nebraska. some said great, but what about our state? senator nelson took a lot of heat for this. he's a conservative leaning democrat in a strongly republican state. he's gone around the state and done all kinds of ads to explain his position, and finally he said to senator reed, let's take this off the table. he said let's give it to all states or take it out entirely. host: wlats going on in massachusetts -- with what's going on in massachusetts, how long until he could be sworn into the senate? guest: this is a matter of contention. you haveçó democratic-leaning officials in massachusetts saying it may take two weeks to officially process the win. thers÷ tradition in the senate it is not disputed, you get that person in there as quickly as possible. i can bet republicans would be crying foul if democrats tried to string this out and lea

from, you know, the senate version where ben nelson took $100 million medicare and medicaid payoff and decided to sign on the dotted line. how does it get there the house now? >> well, i hope that bart stupak remains stalworth. the problem with so many moderate democrats we have seen them fold every time. ben nelson did. now he has a huge backlash from his constituents. not just on the bribery part, but also on the abortion funding part of it as well. he's retreating. he's saying now he's saying oh, i think everybody should get the same deal i did. how are they going to pay for that on top of that? how is it going to get through? well, of course, the democrats who are in full freak-out mode are gaming this all out. it's possible that the senate might try to force the house to swallow what they put through. so they could expedite it on the timeline. but i think another thing that people have to worry about here is what is going on, on the ground, in massachusetts over this weekend? we talked about the unions, the service employees international union. they will be putting at least 3

. 60% of all health care is run by the government today. medicare, medicaid, indian health service, military, and v.a., tricare. 60% of it is run by the government. one of the reasons you have an absolute shortage of primary care doctors in this country is because we have set the price for what they're going to pay for primary care and the doctors won't go into it anymore, because there's a 350% payment differential. so we can either embrace our heritage, which says we've relied on markets to allocate scarce resources, or we can deny it and allow the government to run it. i think the health care bill ultimately will pass. i think they're going to buy the votes. you saw what happened in the senate. they're going to dot exact same thing in -- do the exact same thing in the house to get the votes they need and we will have a health care bill that the president will sign. don't think it's the best answer for us as a nation. i can tell you what's in that bill. it puts the government in charge of what you'll get, when you'll get it and where you'll get it, and that's even if you have pri
